A five day marathon where stakeholders have come together to campaign on ending violence against women and children and freeing Fiji from pornography started in the Western Division this morning.

The 2022 Duavata West Champs 4 Wellness is made up of teams from various stakeholders in Nadi including Ever Accountable Fiji, the Western Charity Alliance, Denarau Lions Rugby Club and the Axellerate Duavata Devo Babas Rugby team and supported by the Fiji Police Duavata Community Policing team.

The campaign will see volunteers distribute awareness materials to schools, villages and settlements providing an opportunity for men and boys to advocate on anti-pornography and non-violence throughout Fiji.

The team also aims to reach out to as many people to support the voices of women and children facing any form of violence beginning from Namaka, Nadi to Lautoka, Ba, Rakiraki, Nausori, Suva, Navua, Sigatoka and back to their final destination in Namaka.

Sixty volunteers will be participating in this five day marathon around Viti Levu.

Forty participants will be participating in the marathon while the remaining team members will be raising awareness in schools, villages and towns.
